“Comfortable, friendly staff”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

The rooms were clean, comfortable and good value for money. Game drives were superb and the management went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Great bar overlooking the plains. Highly recommended.

Myself and my fiancé stayed at African Spirit Lodge 30th Jan - 1st Feb 2014 and would highly recommend it to anyone. We stayed in the 4-sleeper self catering unit which was clean, comfortable and had everything you need for a self catering trip. The private outside braai/booma area was a great bonus for and we spent each evening meal by the fire under the starry sky. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful, they arranged our morning game drive and afternoon walking safari (excellent experience - a must if you visit this game reserve!). Thank you for a lovely stay!

We spent two nights at African Spirit with the four of us. We had booked the 'self catering' accommodation which turned out ideal for our purposes. The accommodation was very spacious and rather felt like a house than a 'unit'. The game drive we booked was our first and we were impressed by the expert knowledge and the animals and plants we saw including black and white rhino's

In comparison to other drives, the Jesse from the ASGL was outstanding as he really knows the area, is always connected to other guides and shares his wisdom of the animal world. Lodging was great as well.
